The 15Five Check-in gives you a voice: to share that brilliant idea that’s been floating around in your head for 3 months -- or to finally get attention on that stuck project you’re dying to complete. Use it as your work journal to reflect on progress, roadblocks, and get the support you need from your manager to win. Still not convinced? We've got the science to back it.
Here is a glimpse into what to expect from a 15Five; the Anatomy of a 15Five, if you will.
"How did you feel at work this week?" The Pulse check allows you to reflect on your general feeling for the week and is the first and most important data point that signals to your manager when things are going well and also when issues may arise. It’s important to acknowledge feelings like disappointment, frustration, and stress early on to prevent issues from becoming major problems. It’s also important to acknowledge when you feel the most excited, inspired, and engaged, and dig deep to understand what led to all that positivity.
Questions are the meat of 15Five. These will be set up by your manager and/or company admin (normally People Ops). Questions drive deeper discussion and connection within teams.
High Fives are where you can recognize a teammate that has been doing great work! This is your opportunity to show appreciation where it is due. Want to make sure you give a great High Five? Check out the High Five Best Practices!
Who can see my 15Five?
15Five visibility varies by company and is set up by company admins. Some teams have complete transparency while other teams may only allow managers to view an individuals' 15Five. To see who has access to view your 15Five, visit this page.
